From the Canadian Press:
Premiers call on Martin to explain Liberal election promise on pharmacare
Canada's premiers issued a challenge Thursday to Prime Minister Paul Martin to say exactly what he meant when he promised a national pharmacare program during the June election campaign.

Wrapping up two days of talks, the premiers said a drug plan is a critical part of an overall package of health-care reforms but stopped short of demanding Martin agree to the scheme. "We have been disappointed by the initial negative response of the federal government," said Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty.
